Line up complete!
We’re on the home straight and heading for June! Today, Graspop Metal Meeting has added a further thirteen bands and, with this, the line-up for the 24th edition is complete. The festival features a total of 106 bands including hefty headliners like KISS, Slipknot, Within Temptation, Slayer (their final Benelux show), Lamb Of God, Sabaton: yet another stunning line-up! View it here.
New to the bill: Glenn Hughes (performs Classic Deep Purple Live), Eisbrecher, Discharge, Bad Wolves, Nasty, Born From Pain, Lovebites, Cellar Darling, The Hu, Black Peaks and Off The Cross, Concealed Reality, Hemelbestormer.
These incredible new names demonstrate just how multifaceted the biggest metal festival in the Benelux region is! There’s legendary rock bassist and vocalist Glenn Hughes, aka ‘The Voice of Rock’, who’s sure to win over the numerous classic rock fans with Deep Purple classics; Eisbrecher, representing the Neue Deutsche Härte; the godfathers of crust punk, Discharge, who’ll get the punks up and pogoing; and the highly promising Bad Wolves who have been embraced en masse by the younger generation of metal fans.
In keeping with tradition, three promising Belgian bands will open the Red Bull Metal Dome on Thursday 20 June - the eve of the three-day festival. This year’s selection is: Off The Cross, Concealed Reality and Hemelbestormer.
There is one small change in the line-up: Atreyu have been forced to cut their European tour short and hope to attend Graspop Metal Meeting on another occasion.
You can find a list of bands and stages here. The exact timetable will follow shortly.
